Sadō "The Way of Tea"
Distillation of Sadō Gin takes place in small copper pot stills, 200 bottles at a time, in England. The gin is then reduced to 46% of alcohol to best showcase all the aromas and flavors it contains. You can enjoy Sadō Gin mixed in cocktails or simply with your favorite tonic water.
”the Way of Tea”
Our journey starts with the unique Hojicha roasted green tea which originated in Kyoto, Japan over a hundred years ago.
In early 2019 during trip to Japan we fell in love with Hojicha tea’s distinct taste and aroma. After searching Japan for the best quality Hojicha tea we found a small plantation in Okumikawa that produced a remarkable tea. Many of the tea trees on the farm are over 100 years old and they have made teas for the Emperor of Japan for almost 40 years.
After researching the best botanicals we created our recipe from eight of the finest:
Juniper, Hojicha Tea, Orris Root, Coriander seeds, Elderflower, Sweet orange peel, Lemongrass and pink peppercorn.
Sadō Gin is fantastic straight up, but also in classic gin martinis with the twist. We also love it in Tom Collins, Negronis, Gin Fizzes, Mint Gimlets, French 75’s or even martini with Sadō Gin and sake. What’s Your Way?
